Bio Photo "De mortuis nil nisi bonum"--Chilon of Sparta

Although I live in Oklahoma, many of the memorials I have created and tombstone photos I have added are for the counties of Clay, Dickinson, Riley and Geary in Kansas. Please visit my homepage for Clay County genealogy--it contains links to the other counties mentioned, too.

I am happy to add information to memorials, and will transfer to relatives. Please use the "Edit" button at the top right of the memorial to request transfers or to add information. If requesting a transfer, please note how this person is related to you--not because of any FAG policy, just because I'm nosy!

I want to give a special shout out to Emily for the many obituaries she has submitted for Fairlawn Cemetery in OKC. She doesn't want credit, so I won't give her last name, but I know that I and especially the families of those whose obits she sent appreciate it!

As winter brings a longer night,
And women read by candlelight,
They come to know, like sun, like rain,
Nothing lasts, not love nor pain.
O Time! O Time! O thieving Time!
Give me back my stolen years.
--"The Ghosts of Versailles"

RE: Cowing, Greenwood Cemetery, Clay Center KS
Thank you Sheryl. I already have obits and/or other documents for John Scott Cowing, his wife Martha (Haden)Cowing, three of their children Eva May Cowing, Infant Cowing, and Florence Martha (Cowing) Worsley, (wife of Robert Ford Worsley), and two grandchildren children (children of Florence and Robert) Henry Scott Worsley and Lawrence Worsley, all of whom, Greenwood Cemetery records show, were buried in that same lot along with Edith and John Ware for whom the lot was originally purchased. The only info I do not have is this infant's name.

I questioned Mr Utley's entry because John Scott also had a son John Samuel Cowing and a grandson John Samuel Cowing, Jr. I thought perhaps he confused one of these two names as this infant or misread the entry as "J.S. Cowing infant of" or perhaps he actually found the initials or name of this infant. Mr. Utley did send a reply indicating his source.

RE: Josephine Cornish
Thanks very much for transferring my great grandmother's memorial to me. Thanks also for the helpful hint; I didn't know that including my member number would make it easier to transfer.

Best regards,
Gregory Day

RE: Nixons, etc.
Hi Sheryl,

Thank you so much for the info on Bertha and poor little Loyal, l will certainly add them to my family cemetery. l looked at Bertha's memorial and you're right, she has been linked to the wrong parents.

All your hard work is very much appreciated!! Thank you again.

Hello - you entered the two Martinsons in the cemetery and the husband has quite an obit. So, I want to ask a far fetched question: do you know the brothers of the husband because someone has found dog tags from Vietnam for a L. F.Martinson, Lutheran, USMC. Facebook - go to Kim Hawk and see her photo of tag.

RE: Maude Herren Baker
Hi Sheryl,

I've made suggested edits to everyone of the Herren females that I could find. So I'll have to wait and see if the edits are accepted.

If you would like to transfer Charles and Cora to me that would be okay, but I am not really closely related to them. I am just trying to link people together based on the obit that I have for Emma Burt.

So whatever you'd like to do would be fine with me. I appreciate the offer.

Thanks for your help.

RE: Ruth Sickels
Sheryl, I am sorry about the mix up I have deleted the one note I left explaining about the two husbands. I did not check like I should have as I was more intent on adding to Ruth's memorial and did not know it would mess anything up. Brada Ruth Kinney was the daughter of my grandfather's sister. Thanks, Margaret

Thank you so much for the transfers! It's nice meeting another family member who has done so much on the family tree! Keep up the good work!

RE: Vians
Thank you for all of your help. I am a descendant of William & Jane Vian. Rebecca Disler Ehl is my ggg-grandmother. Most of my descendants are from DeKalb & Allen counties in Indiana.

I don't know, but I'll see what I can dig up. Would you like me to add that info to her memorial? Thanks.
